"This book is for those who love trees and the opportunities to bask in comforting shade."
Steven Lamphear, "Des Moines News," June 19, 2006"

From the Back Cover

Every garden has some shade some gardens are mostly shaded. Unfortunately, most gardeners see shade as a problem. Questions about what to plant in shady parts of the garden are among the most frequent posed in gardeners' magazines, phone-ins, and online discussions. In "Shade," award-winning gardening expert Keith Wiley turns all the familiar preconceptions on their heads by presenting garden shade in a positive light, showing how you can create tapestries of color using wild woodland flowers from around the world, as well as modern varieties derived from them.
Keith Wiley first discusses shade from dappled and partial to full and dense in different situations and in every size and type of garden. He then considers the characteristics of shade-loving plants, showing how to use them with companions to create striking designs. He also looks att the practicalities of preparing, planting, and maintaining a shade garden.
Complete with a directory of shade-loving plants, "Shade" shows you how to turn shady areas into the highlights of your garden. "

Enhanced with a directory of shad-loving plants, and drawing upon his many years of experience and expertise, Keith Wiley's "Shade" is a complete and comprehensive single volume reference that is as 'user friendly' as it is innovative and inspiring. No personal, horticultural department, plant nursery, or community library Gardening Reference collection should be without a copy of Keith Wiley's "Shade"!

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Picture Book 27 Nov. 2009
By Jackie Lou - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has tons of amazing photographs, but doesn't follow through in my book. I wanted more information, and ideas that were not just illustrated. I have tons of shade in my garden, but I don't think the average gardener could just look at these pictures, and know how to replicate them in their gardens. Great for the coffee table.

3.0 out of 5 stars shad garden ideas 27 Sept. 2010
By Laura S. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book appears to focus on large estate size areas, rather than typical home lots. I have only skimmed the book and it's presentation is to look at shade in nature/woodlands. The photos are nice, but no quick ideas.
